Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Rotational Symmetry - Section 2: Skill Building/Exploration


As I reflect back on the planning of this lesson, I am pleased overall with how the lesson was planned.  There is one aspect that I would change before I teach the lesson the next time.  I would either put dots at the top of each figure in order for the students to remember the original position, or I would give the students an extra copy of the handout so that they will have it available at their desks.  I realized that this was needed during this lesson, that is why I displayed the shapes on the Smartboard.  It would have been more convenient with the dots or having another copy available to the students.
